The 3rd Annual Jozi Film Festival, taking place 21-23 February 2014, will highlight the very best in filmmaking in the heart of Johannesburg, one of the world’s most diverse and electrifying cities. Fantastic stories about Jozi and her habitants, and films made by local filmmakers, will be screened over a three-day period at several venues throughout the city, including The Bioscope Independent Cinema in the hip Maboneng precinct on the east side of the Johannesburg CBD.
The Jozi Film Festival will present a multi-genre slate of films from emerging and established filmmakers, exploring a broad range of themes and topics that affect our communities and stir our hearts and minds.
The 3rd Annual Jozi Film Festival will also present several international films that will resonate with our festival audiences and will compliment our line up of local films.
The festival will also offer provocative Q&A sessions with the filmmakers in attendance; workshops and seminars. Wrapping up the festival will be JFF’s exciting Awards Ceremony on February 23, 2014.
CLOSING DATE for Submissions is: 18 October 2013.
Competition categories include: Best Feature Film, Best Feature Documentary Film, Best Animated Film, Best Fiction Short, Best Documentary Short, Best Student Film, Audience Choice Award, and Best Mobile Phone Film! Prizes will be offered to the winners.
The Jozi Film Festival is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching local culture, supporting the city’s vibrant film community, and reaching new audiences that don’t traditionally attend film festivals through the powerful language of film.
